The max is 10 small boxes per large box ($2,500) which weighs about 45 pounds.

 is this true even for the new smaller boxes? it was 10 with the larger boxes since thats the max that would fit with the size of the old small boxes.

the new small boxes w/o the plastic trays are 1/3 teh size of the old ones with the trays in them.

 I understand the coins will weigh the same but 10 boxes of the old were all that fit in and wasnt based on the weight of them. have you ordered over $2500 and 10 boxes was the max they put into a large box? I wonder if I ordered $3000 if they make 2 boxes for shipping or put it all in 1.

is there any advice for ways to order more coins once you have maxed out the household limit? like  using different credit card? or different address?anybody have any experience? i was thinking if all you need is a new credit card number for the mint to approve the order then take the same credit you have and just say it got lost so you would get a replacement card with the same acct but just a different cc number

New T&C's from the mints website:
"There is a 4-box $1 Coin limit for every 10-day period on any and all $1 Coin orders. Beyond that your credit card will not be authorized. If you need quantities greater than this, please send an e-mail before placing your order to directship@usmint.treas.gov explain why your order should be exempted from the limit."

There have been reports that this limit is per household.
If the 10 day limit goes by order date, shipping date or CC authorization date is still unknown but time will tell.

I was FR'd by amex right after buying coins from the mint and they said that the cause for FR was a recent large purchase of Dollar coins!!

It happened about 2 months ago. The FR was about a week or two after ordering the coins.

I got a new AMEX Starwood card and made a bunch of purchases, not even getting close to my credit limit. Three days ago the US Mint authorized a transaction for $3,000 worth of coins (my first order ever). Today I got a call for a financial review from AMEX. I know the coins are what triggered it.

Has anyone ever tried taking $1,000 worth of coins to Walmart and getting a money order with them? Please share your experiences.

Called the US Mint today. The 10 day rule applies to the last date of purchase, not date of shipping or charge to your cc.

You can't buy a money order with a credit card.

The point of the US Mint program is to get the coins into circulation. I know that Walmart does money orders for 60 cents. I wanted to take $1,000 of coins to Walmart and get a money order. Then I can deposit the money order in my bank and pay my cc. That way I am complying with the program and not direct depostiting the coins. Besides, if I went to several stores to get m.o. then maybe I wouldn't get the hassle with the bank or strange looks.

I have never bought coins before and am just afraid of the strange responses I will get, whether it is from Walmart or bank tellers.
